Pride of Waltham Forest awards
Celebrate the best of our borough and nominate your local hero for our Pride of Waltham Forest awards.
Coronation Square is the major joint regeneration project from Waltham Forest Council and Taylor Wimpey. The proposals will bring significant positive change to the area and deliver 750 new homes, of which 50 per cent will be affordable. The public realm, called Market Square, will include hard and soft landscaping trees, planters, a fountain, seating and a pocket park.
Market Square will be the central feature of the Coronation Square development. There will be new homes, commercial and community space fronting onto Market Square, as well as a sports and leisure centre and nursery. The development will also be home to a new NHS health hub.
Activities in Market Square could include community festivals, food or craft markets, film screenings, events for families and children, and exercise classes. Just to name a few ideas, and we want your views!
Come along to our online Zoom event on Wednesday 9 March 5pm to 6pm. The event will feature short presentations from the Council and Fourth Street, who are placemaking consultants commissioned to develop a strategy for activating Market Square. Participants will then be encouraged to share their ideas in an interactive session.
This event will be held at Leyton Library on Wednesday 16 March and will feature display information about Market Square and its location. Drop-in anytime between 4pm and 8pm to share your views directly with Fourth Street. Let us know what you would like to see happen in the new square. Just turn up or register below for more info:
